AST continues to devote more and more time and resources to Internet marketing because of its low cost (excluding time), the ROI thus far, and ability to directly interact with target audience (staffing executives and managers).

  • Keeping our email database up-to-date and carving it up into additional segments: type of staffing firm, women-owned, geographic, etc…
  • Monitoring conversations on Twitter and Linkedin that AST should be aware of and could potentially participate in, or encourage clients to participate in.
  • Edit and posting some of the video content that AST produces on YouTube and blog.
  • Researching other tools and areas of social media that either intern or Everett sees value in potentially adopting.
  • Potentially work one-on-one with AST staff members to build out their Linkedin profiles and maybe even Twitter profiles.
  • Post updates on AST’s Facebook Fan Page and Twitter profile.
  • Potentially contribute content for the Mad Staffing Blog, Squidoo pages, Linkedin discussions, and even Wikipedia.

Requirements

We are looking for applicants with the following skills, experience, and disposition:

  • Microsoft Office products, especially Word and Excel.
  • Some college-level marketing coursework and/or experience.
  • Comfort and familiarity with social media (e.g. Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin, and blogging).
  • Creative and business-writing experience.
  • Ability to do a thorough job on structured tasks such as maintaining an email database, while being able to do more open-ended research and writing assignments.
  • Familiarity with HTML, basic video editing, and graphic design experience is a plus.

Other Details About Internship

  • This is an unpaid internship.
  • 10 to 20 hours per week.
  • Flexible hours.
  • This is a “remote internship”: meetings will take place in public places, coffee shops, or on campus in areas with Wi-Fi.  Most of the work can be done remotely.

Cabrini Com. Dept. to host annual career panel of Philly Ad Club, Tuesday, April 6, 6-7:30 p.m. Widener Lecture Hall

Careers in Advertising & Communications: Where The Jobs Are! And the exclamation point is there for a reason. To proclaim that, at long last, there are signs that the outlook for jobs in advertising and communication are improving. Lots of different types of jobs in a wide range of companies are out there for students majoring in advertising, communications, marketing, and related disciplines, and these events will help you find them.

The event features a panel of advertising and communication professionals—drawn from ad agencies, media buying firms, PR firms, and media companies—discussing the questions that are top-of-mind for students, such as:

  • How do I get an internship? How do I land that first full-time job?
  • What can I do to make myself a more desirable candidate to potential employers?
  • What’s the best place to work? Ad agency vs. media company? Agency or in-house? Big vs. small agency? Philly vs. New York City?

And the panelists will stay around after the formal discussion to network with you and answer your questions one-on-one.

All area college students are welcome to attend.  Registration will open the week of March 22; we’ll contact you via email to let you know.

Quoted – How to Find a Job with Linkedin MySpace Twitter and Facebook and other Social Media

This is an excellent book written by Brad and Debra Schepp. My advice as follows when it comes to posting on social media:

  • Be careful of what you put on your pages
  • Monitor what others put on your wall
  • Don’t post anything you would not want your mother to read

Employers may go to your Facebook or other social networking pages to get an idea of your interests and personality so obviously you want to be careful what you post and you may also post those activities that are consistent with your career goals.

For example, you may want have an American Marketing Association link or information if you are a marketing major.

The four social networking sites I like the most are LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and Plaxo they all bring something interesting to the table.
